|As can be seen from the plan
above, St Nicolas' has seen many changes in its time, and
succeeding generations have left their mark on the structure.
Yet surprisingly later changes have not changed the overall
impression of a perfect, cruciform Anglo-Norman church. In
the following pages we shall attempt to show why St Nicolas'
stands where it does, and how history and the surroundings have
influenced the development of this most fascinating church,
truly a jewel in the crown of Sussex.
